I can't download via iTunes the 2.1 update for days now! Is there a site that I can download the file only then manually replace my 2.0.1 that is on my phone now by doing a restore after? And as long as I sinc my phone before will that save all my apps and contacts and such? Thanks.

You can manually download it here.

how did you install it manually?

I clicked on the file once I downloaded it but iTunes opens and wants to download it all over again...

if you're on a mac, hold option and click on restore, or if you're using windows, hold shift and click on restore.

then navigate to where you downloaded the file.

You also have to have the latest version of iTunes running as well.
Might want to make sure that it updated first.

Album art...

I have two albums by Alterbridge that iTunes can't find the artwork for, so I downloaded the artwork and added it manually to iTunes but it doesn't show up in coverflow on my iPhone?

New problem with this update or known issue?

How does one insert a phone number from the contacts list?

as for the missing artwork... have you tried removing and re-syncing the albums?

In an sms....

Do you mean an existing contact? If so, click on the contact and click the edit button in the upper right corner.
I need to add an existing contact's details to an sms or email...

Yes I tried that. I can't find out if the iPhone needs the artwork to be a specific quality / size...

it shouldn't. I believe when you sync, iTunes "optimizes" the artwork for the iPhone.

Incidently, the only artwork appearing in Cover Flow View is from the Apple Store. If I go to Artists, select the artist with the missing artwork, it is displayed ok...

No, but I will try it now...

I clicked on Get Info and browsed to the file on my hard drive then added it...
